Bento Recipes: French Fries

There are several ways to cook french fries. I prefer to bake them, as it's less complex, involves a greatly reduced risk of third degree burns, and avoids all the grease and calories of deep-frying in oil.

Baked Steak Fries - Cut up a regular baking potato into fries the size and shape you like. Soak the cut potato for an hour in ice cold water to firm it up. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Take the fries out of the water and pat them dry with a paper towel. Put a tablespoon of canola oil into a bowl and mix the fries around in it good to give them all a thin coating. Lightly grease a baking sheet or spritz with cooking oil spray. Lay the fries out in a single layer on the sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then take them out and turn them. Bake for another 15 minutes. Take out and let cool before eating with salt, ketchup, or whatever else you fancy.
